Looks like master tipster Evan Blass is way ahead of others in leaking out details about the iPhone 7. A few days ago, he revealed that the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus will hit the store shelves on Friday, September 16. Blass has now tweeted out that Apple will start taking pre-orders for the upcoming phones on Friday, September 09. Since Apple announces new iPhones a couple of days before pre-orders kick off, September 6 is likely to be the day the unveiling event would take place.
iPhone 7 to be unveiled on Sept.6?
Last year, the Cupertino company unveiled the iPhone 6S and 6S Plus on Sept.9, started taking pre-orders on Sept.12, and released the phones on Sept.25. Blass had also reported recently that the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus were internally code named “Sonora” and “Dos Palos”, the names of cities in California. Previously, the rumor mill claimed that Apple would also launch a third variant called iPhone 7 Pro alongside the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus. But there have been contradictory reports regarding the iPhone 7 Pro.

The iPhone 7 and 7 Plus are not expected to bring a design overhaul as Apple is keeping significant design changes for the next year’s iPhone 8 to mark the 10th anniversary of the iPhone. This year’s devices are said to get rid of the 3.5mm headphone jack. The iPhone 7 is likely to get an improved camera with OIS, while its 5.5-inch sibling will feature a dual-camera setup and 3GB RAM. Both devices will be powered by TSMC-made A10 processor.
Apple to use new tech in iPhone 7 home button
Other expected features include a slightly larger battery, a faster LTE and WiFi. Apple is also increasing the base storage from 16GB to 32GB. Rumors indicate that the iPhone 7 will be available in 32GB, 64GB and 128GB options, while the iPhone 7 Plus will come in 32GB, 128GB and 256GB storage variants. There are also contradictory reports about whether the upcoming device will be called iPhone 7 or iPhone 6SE.
Earlier this week, two separate reports claimed that the iPhone 7 home button won’t click physically. Instead, it will simulate the feeling of a click with haptic feedback. It means the iPhone 7 home button would work pretty much like the Force Touch trackpad in the 12-inch MacBook. The change will help make the new iPhones more waterproof.
